October has arrived quite quickly. Although the temperatures still feels like it is summer, we have a number of autumnal events to celebrate. Our fourth annual fall College and Career Fair will be held on Friday, October 12. Students will have the opportunity to visit with representatives from colleges, universities, organizations, businesses and the military. We believe that our students can make the best decisions moving forward when they have the appropriate information. The month of October also means that our annual homecoming is right around the corner. We hope to see everyone at our homecoming on October 19th when we take on the West Jefferson Buccaneers, and we’d love to see students and alums come out to support our Fighting Irish football players, cheer on our homecoming court and crown our 2018 Homecoming King and Queen. Our performance groups, cheerleaders and the band would love to perform to a packed stadium.
Please join us in congratulating our seniors Haleigh Lozano and Nyah Pittman who have been selected to serve on the Jefferson Parish Public Schools System Superintendent’s Student Leadership Council. They went through a rigorous application process, and they are to be commended for their commitment to JPS.
PBIS will host the annual Oktoberfest, a celebration of our students and their successes as they strive to be on the “A” list. Our students understand that the 4As are the foundation for successful lifelong endeavors.
Lastly, I wish to thank our students as they donned their snazziest jeans for our Denim and Dollars for Scholars Day as well as Grace King employees for attaining 100% participation in our faculty and staff campaign. Collectively, we are able to donate $554 to Jefferson Dollars for Scholars.
May good luck be with you wherever you go, and your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow,
Ms. Sharon Meggs-Hamilton
